mountains which have why there's concern as this rain begins out there you have a mix of sleet and maybe freezing rain and possibly even a little bit of snow. 51 degrees in the district. so very comfortable as we go through the evening hours tonight and the clouds will continue to thickening up and we drop to 48 by 7:00 and 46 by 9:00 and 44 by 11:00 and in and around here closer suburbs near 0 and upper 0s awlingt to do it at some time. south of d.c. mid 40s should be nice and here's the rain coming we've only got the clouds as we look down to the south plenty of helpful moisture moving and reminder we're still in moderate here despite rain last week that took the edge off. but the changes approaches our area we'll have a little good fly of cool air and as the system comes on up it's possible tomorrow morning that that rain could much with a little sleet in a few areas as it begins across the region.

certainly cloudy conditions and by into, 4 and rain and by 4:00, 4 degrees. that's kind of chilly. but you can see that it is also going to be rain because many areas should get half inch to inp of rain for us tuesday. that would be good news. mean while we're looking at 40s during the day tomorrow. we wrap that up with "fox5" accuweather 7-day forecast. tuesday, 4. but by the time we get into wednesday the sun is back and we're near 54. so thursday a few showers. an you can see that we're much colder strong front comes in on thursday and it is really going into the upper 0s. so 39 degrees for the high on thursday and friday and that actually friday, saturday, that will be the coldest air we've seen so far this season. sunday 45 and monday back up toer 40s with couple early showers around. bundle up. >> so bundle up. >> get ready for it. >> absolutely. >> more active this week. >> thank you, sue.
